World Drywall & Building Plaster

More than one-third of new drywall demand generated between 2015 and 2020 will be in China, where demand for drywall is expected to increase 6.0 percent per annum, bolstered by significant, although slowing, increases in both residential and nonresidential construction. About three-fourths of drywall use in China is generated by nonresidential building construction, so product demand will benefit from the nonresidential market’s relatively better prospects.

Developing countries show growth

Many other industrializing countries -- including Brazil, India, Indonesia, Iran, Mexico, and Thailand -- are forecast to post solid growth in drywall demand through 2020. Increasing demand for urban housing will drive residential building construction spending and related drywall sales. Growth in office and commercial construction activity will also contribute to gains. Construction of interior walls and ceilings with drywall yields savings in time and labor costs compared to alternatives such as concrete masonry units. As labor costs rise in developing countries, building con- tractors will increasingly be attracted to the use of drywall.

Western Europe attempts a recovery

Many West European countries are expected to post rebounds in drywall demand as their housing markets recover. However, in countries such as Greece, Italy, Portugal, and Spain, drywall demand in 2020 will remain significantly below that of a decade earlier, as the housing rebound will occur from a severely depressed 2015 level and will not recover all of the ground lost in the housing downturn.

Building plaster faces challenges

Building plaster demand growth will be slower than that in the drywall segment. Although some building plaster demand is associated with drywall use (e.g., joint com- pounds), traditional wet construction methods account for the bulk of demand for building plaster. Construction firms in many countries are projected to increase their use of drywall-based construction techniques gradually at the expense of plaster-based construction, constraining demand for building plaster.

Study coverage

World Drywall & Building Plaster presents historical data (2005, 2010 and 2015) plus forecasts (2020 and 2025) for drywall and building plaster supply and demand for residential and nonresidential markets in six regions and 21 countries.
